Isn’t It Romantic Poppy Parker as Sabrina…Take 2

So I just couldn’t leave this one alone.  While I was photographing the original set, I was inspired by another photo and had to do that one too…

Isn’t It Romantic:Poppy Parker as Sabrina

When I first saw these dolls unveiled at IDEX this past January, I was beside myself with anticipation.  I was just itching to see the real life product and hoping that they would all be as good as their promo photos.  I was not disappointed.  I knew I had to pay tribute to the original black and white movie photos and here is what I came up with.  Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed shooting this one.

The original promo shot from the movie that inspired me….

Okay all you pinners on Pintrest….Please, Please, Please DO NOT pin photos form the photo album below unless you are willing to manually change the link to the blog instead of my skydrive.  If you just pin it from the album ( yes, I realize it is way easier), it will link back to my skydrive and not my blog….Not Cool.  Since I mentioned this before, people have been really good about it.  If it comes up as a problem again though I will cease putting in albums completely.


Christmas in June!

So much to contemplate, it’s hard to know what to debox first…..

“Most Sophisticated” won hands down.   Just removed the pin from her hat and adjusted it lower and she was good to go.  This set is Amazing!  And the luggage!!!  Don’t even get me started on the fantastic luggage LOL!

Isn’t it romantic has some hair issues so she needs a few adjustments before her photos.  Thought I would share what I do for “hair adjustments”.  I like to have bangs lie flat against the head and not floating off the forehead so I slather it with gel and “train” it down with some ribbons.  This is a picture of what I mean

In 24 – 48 hours it should be set.  And the bangs will hopefully lie flat against her head and the back will lie close to her neck.  Will have to see how it turns out.
